Still Christmas season
Happy Monday morning everyone. I hope you all had a wonderful New Year celebration and that everyone is ready and inspired for the new year. I didn't think that my first card for the year would be a Christmas card, but here we are..... I still have a couple of stamped images, so found these challenges that I could enter.
Karen's Doodles challenge calls for a "celebration" card.
Reasonable Ribbons challenge requires you to use something new - Nestie labels 13 and red Christmas brads
Craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge requires a Christmas card - anything goes -
I used the following:
Paper: White cardstock, matted a green card which I ran through the cuttlebug with a Christmas folder and distressed it a little.
Image: is a freebie digital from Karen's doodles. I cut it out with my NEW Nestie labels 13 dies. Coloured with distress inkpads. I put some puff paint on the hat and brushed some stickles on. Used glitter on the present and the bow.
I also added a piece of red and green ribbon for the Reasonable Ribbon challenge.
Sentiment was stamped on a label and attached with 2 red Christmas brads that I received in an Advent swap that I took part in.
The Craftyhazelnuts Christmas challenge runs throughout the year, so by taking part at least you will have a stash of cards for Christmas.... now that's a good idea.
That's it from me, hope to be back shortly with another card.
If you are back at work have a great week, and if still on holiday enjoy the fun.
